The Snuggy Horse Shoulder Guard (formerly Silky Bib) is suitable for use under any rug or hood to prevent rubs to chest, shoulders and withers. The fabric is lightweight, silky, cool and comfortable so suitable for use all year round.
It has no seam at the withers and has a rug buckle loop at the chest for security. Otherwise there are no clips, straps or buckles. After extensive trials we found this 'non-fixed' design the most successful in terms of horse/pony comfort and preventing rubbing. From experience we find fixed, stretchy shoulder bibs the least successful.
Fully machine washable, just wash in a domestic machine on a normal cycle. We recommend to wash the Horse Shoulder Guard regularly to prevent any skin irritation from grease/dirt and also to prolong the life of the fabric.To protect your washing machine from loose hairs and dirt use the Snuggy Laundry Bag to wash the Shoulder Guard and any other 'horsey' items.
